This holiday season, why spend hours designing and hand-printing greeting cards for all your friends and family when you could just mail one postcard to one person without even touching it via Google’s holiday card program? There are six designs to choose from, including this one by yours truly. It’s a pretty neat idea, especially for the people that plan to spend hours making greeting cards but then put it off and put it off until before they know it, it’s January and they have not sent any holiday greetings to anyone at all. That said, I should probably get to work on my holiday cards soon. Anyway, I don’t know anyone who doesn’t have their heart warmed by receiving personal mail in their real live non-virtual mailbox, so do a good deed this holiday season and send a postcard to the person you think is least likely to be on others’ lists.
At this point, you’re probably saying to yourself, “That’s great, Minty, but what I really want is more information about you–your creative process, where you grew up, whether you prefer semicolons to ampersands…” Fortunately, you can find out about all these topics and more in an interview with me at the delightful blog Stickers and Donuts (add it to your Google Reader, you won’t be sorry). Thanks very much to Tricia for her thoughtful questions and interest (and happy birthday to her today!).
